Great! I love the latest update to an app I already loved. The new look is great and even easier to use and I love the new widget. The best part you kept the same, this is my wallpaper for all of my devices and I don't see that changing any time soon. Keep it up!

My favorite of the Apod apps Auto update for new screen daily. What's not to like? Nice job, dev! Update: Still 5 stars. Totally new design/look.

So awesome Before the last update it was ok, a few glitches but livable. Now it it's awesome, well done to the developers, a really polished effort.

Excellent update Love the new widget to see recent pictures but I prefer the single picture widget. Easy to see whole picture in the app and resolution looking better. I've paid to support the developer.
